Message from the Dean
you can experience the pounding excitement.
Let's start together on a journey to answer the question "Why? ".
In the Faculty of Science, we are conducting research and education to elucidate the origins and mechanisms of natural phenomena according to simple intellectual curiosity. Repetition of questions, "Why?" and "How", leads us to discover principles of natural phenomena. Beyond the boundaries of traditional natural sciences, such as mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology, we have two departments, "Material Science" and "Life Science". Here, you can comprehensively learn various ideas and methodologies, and can experience various unique researches. For example, experts in physics-field explore the principle of chemical reaction; master of computational physics is elucidating the principles of the protein and gene function. Group of chemists is challenging the wonder of life. In Hyogo, there are various state-of-the-art research facilities; synchrotron radiation facility (SPring-8), free electron laser facility (SACLA), supercomputer facility (K), and Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory (NHAO). We closely cooperate with these. Towards such research environment, a passionate professors are gathering. In the graduation research, you may select a theme from a variety of choices. Study and research in our faculty are not easy, but if seriously tackle, you can experience the pounding excitement. In addition, the research can lead to a variety of applications, and the learning and research experiences here will lead you to various fields. Come on, let's start together on a journey to answer the question "Why? ".
